Gunfighters video game by Gunfighters

Made by Gunfighters

NOTE: This project is inactive and was intended as a hobby project as opposed to something more serious. It heavily uses the Modular FPS Engine template and 3D models provided by Synty Studiosavailable on the Unity Asset Store, among other assets.

Gunfighters (working title) is an online multiplayer FPS set in the Old West with low poly graphics.

The game supports 12 player multiplayer and bots are supported both on and offline. The player count may be increased but the game needs to be stress tested first, and the current map isn't set-up well for 20 bots.

The game is in a very early, pre-alpha state so expect plenty of bugs. Make sure you are set to the same region if trying to play with a friend, and have bots enabled when hosting a server if you're trying to play solo.

Animations and sounds are placeholder.

Game modes:


Team Deathmatch

Gunslinger (Every kill switches out your weapon in a set order. The first to get a kill with every weapon wins.)

Controls are standard for shooters:

Movement (WSAD)

Leaning (Q and E)

Crouch (C)

Aim (right click)

Fire (left click)

Sprint (shift)

Switch weapons (numbers 1-4 or scroll wheel)

Quick use (G - throws dynamite, etc.)

Tab (Scoreboard)

The Cycle: Frontier

The Cycle: Frontier video game Developed by YAGER and published by YAGER

Developed by YAGER and published by YAGER

Welcome to Fortuna III, a forsaken world where the stakes are high and the rewards higher!

Drop down onto the surface and fill your pockets with treasures and resources. Be wary though, only those who make it out alive are allowed to keep their spoils. Keep an eye out for bloodthirsty beasts and greedy players or set out to actively hunt those and steal their hard-earned prizes for yourself.

Secure a seat on the nearest evac ship to safeguard your loot. Upgrade your gear, purchase new equipment and complete faction-based contracts to increase your gains and unlock new combat options. Prospecting is a risky venture, but greed is sometimes rewarded by the promise of glory. After all, fortune favors the bold in the eye of the storm.


The life of a Prospector is full of danger, but any extra peril is sure to be worth it. You can go it alone or team up but be wary, the more valuable your haul the bigger the risk. Tread recklessly and risk attracting the attention of a pack of sneaky Striders or a monstrous Crusher. Cause too much noise fending off the wildlife and you may give away your position to another trigger-happy player. Remember, losers come home empty-handed, so watch your back.


Map instances stay open for several hours, so Prospectors can drop to the planets surface at any time as long as the storm is not raging. This means no waiting in a queue for other players you just drop onto the surface and off you go. And while you're down there, be prepared for a constant ebb and flow of threats and opportunities, as others get taken out or evacuate, and are replaced by new arrivals!


Fortuna III is a lush, mysterious planet on the edge of the galaxy. Once prized for its natural resources, it was ravaged by the Cycle, a radioactive storm that quickly wiped-out civilization, leaving behind ghost settlements and forcing survivors to retreat to the orbiting station. The storm is still a threat and yet the surface is full of spoils and treasures. Will you hunker down to survive the stormy night or use this risky opportunity to look for rare materials?


Returning to the relative safety of Prospect Station will allow you to secure your spoils and turn in your completed contracts. Use your newfound resources to improve your personal quarters with permanent upgrades and purchase new equipment. Tune up your favorite weapons with a neat array of mods and gear up with the perfect tools for your next drop. This may not be a corner of paradise but its home. Your home.

STAY ALIVE video game Developed by Mad Games Studio and published by Mad Games Company

Developed by Mad Games Studio and published by Mad Games Company

Are you ready to travel to the mysterious island that you discovered on your way to Siberia? But what awaits you, not on the map, not on GPS, this island has not been subsidized anywhere. Can you still leave this island as soon as possible? The right decision! But will you be able to survive?


You are a typical average journalist, hungry for sensationalism. Finally, for such a long period of work, you are assigned a major report related to multiple forest fires in Siberia. But during the preparation for the trip, a strange series of events happens, after which you find yourself on an unknown island with dense forests in an unknown way. What kind of adventure without horror? That's right, no! Every night, and not only on the island, strange creatures wake up who want to feast on you.

Oh no, they're in trees, they're behind rocks, they're behind a rock or behind a house, they're everywhere!

How can I be saved?

Explore the island, adapt and use everything you find on the island in order to survive elementary. The main thing to remember is that monsters are afraid of fire, right?

Mysterious signal towers that stand all over the island, why are they and for whom are they?

I wonder what kind of strange military base, maybe it's worth exploring?

Find chests with a unique loot that will help you get off the island or at least not die in the first days!


A beautiful world covered with secrets!

At first glance, a pretty little island with interesting landscapes and a fascinating sunset. What could be better? But unfortunately, every night the "cute and beautiful" island turns into a cage surrounded on all sides by water with an abnormally fast current. A cage where every wrong decision or step will lead to incredible pain, and maybe even death.


Fortunately, an interesting fauna is attached to the "cute and beautiful" island, which will help you survive.

Collect and get items and food for basic survival.

Never forget your backpack, because it can be stolen.

Learn to hide from enemies with the help of local flora to escape.

If you see a person in a military uniform or in strange clothes, then you can try to talk to them, but we are not sure that this is the best solution.

Your only friend is a bonfire. Do not forget to feed him, otherwise it will be bad all alone, in the dark and surrounded by monsters.

You may be an electrician, but that's not for sure. Why? Well, you know how to set up towers for communication and improve communication on your phone.

From time to time you will get bored, use the phone to entertain yourself somehow.


At the head of the graphics process is the latest Unreal Engine 5. Which allows you to achieve high performance without loss of image quality. The unique Lumen system allows you to recreate fully dynamic lighting and high-quality reflections in the water and not only. And the Nanite system allows you to use highly detailed models in the game, without loss of performance and quality.

The Maze

The Maze video game Developed by N-Orbit Studios and published by N-Orbit Studios

Developed by N-Orbit Studios and published by N-Orbit Studios

The Maze was created to challenge you in many different ways, it has such a simple objective, find the end. I don't want to describe too much about the game because I want the player to explore the game and enjoy the discovery of new things. The Maze is a very large 3d maze built on terrain, with vegetation, trees, water, and different biomes, it stretches many miles with dozens of different challenges, it also has a full active weather system that adds an awesome environment to the game. You will find some loot but you will have to craft most everything you will need to survive. During the day you can forage for berries and other food, you can even hunt animals for meat and leather, but at night you become the hunted and will need to find a safe place to set up camp and get you some sleep. All the souls the Maze has claimed walk the Maze at night looking for food YOU. so be careful and enjoy.

Please remember this game is in Early Access and is not complete yet, but it is very playable. Thanks for your support.

"If you're not careful and you no-clip out of reality in the wrong areas, you'll end up in the Backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of old moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, the endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in.

God save you if you hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you"
